How To Land Your Dream Legal Job – Solicitor/Legal Executive/Paralegal

How To Land Your Dream Job As A Solicitor, Legal Executive, Paralegal Or Legal Adviser…

Until 2003 I was a solicitor in full time practice. I started my legal career as a trainee legal executive. From year two I ran a full client case load at the same time as undergoing first distance learning to qualify as a Legal Executive before then moving on to qualify as a solicitor, undergoing two years part time study at Guildford College Of Law.

My first job as a trainee legal executive I obtained not through a recruitment company, but by handwriting 63 letters (yes, I remember the number very well). From those 63 letters I received one interview and was offered the job. After accepting the offer I received further offers for interview, but I had accepted the first offer by then.

In my legal career of 14 years I applied to four more law firms (once I had qualified as a solicitor) and I received four offers of employment.

In each occasion I did not use a recruitment company.

I was offered partnership by one of my firms but left with a view to setting up my law firm marketing consultancy, which I did in 2003.

I know what it takes to land your dream legal job – I obtained mine several times and since then I have helped several friends in the legal world obtain their dream job.

I have even helped friends land non-legal dream jobs.

Can I help you too?

Further Learnings For Landing Dream Legal Jobs From Working With Law Firms

Since 2003 I have worked with hundreds of law firm owners to grow their businesses. I used to think that was all that I had to do being a law firm marketing consultant. However, I have learned over the years that nothing gets in the way of growing a law firm more than not being able to find the right legal team, so I have spent a lot of time working with my clients to help them grow and retain their teams too.

I know the frustrations law firm owners feel when trying to recruit new team members.

This knowledge, coupled with my own experience of applying for and landing my own dream legal jobs, plus my understanding of what law firm owners are looking for I believe puts me in a completely unique position to help you to land your dream legal job too.
